We are the Oahu kayaking tour experts!
Our shop is located minutes from the beach in Kailua on the Windward (East) side of the Island of Oahu. Whether you are visiting Hawaii and want to rent a kayak or paddle board to explore the beautiful island waters, join a tour for a guided adventure, or get world class instruction, we have it all.

Your unforgettable day begins bright and early in the morning when our friendly, dedicated staff will come pick you up right in Waikiki.

Kailua Bay enjoys the famously beautiful weather of Hawaii year round. Winter temperatures average in the high 70’s and summer is in the mid to upper 80’s.
Make your plans flexible – when planning for a day of paddling allow for changes due to weather and ocean conditions.
Plan to do your kayaking soon after you arrive, then if the weather is bad, we can re-schedule so that you can go kayaking when the weather is better.
Guided Tour – includes a kayak, life jacket, and paddle, picnic lunch, and a guide that will teach you paddling technique, guide you safely to off-shore islands, and tell you about the birds, marine life and history of Hawaii. Also included in this package is snorkeling gear, a dry bag, and padded backrest for your kayak. Hotel transportation from any hotel in Waikiki is also included in this package.
Self-Guided Adventure Package – includes a kayak, life jacket, and paddle, picnic lunch, snorkeling gear, a dry bag, and padded backrest for your kayak.

Kailua Beach Adventure – includes mask, fins and snorkel, boogie board, picnic lunch and hotel transportation from Waikiki. Kayak rental is not included in this package.
Comfortable swimwear and shoes or sandals good for walking on rocks.

Seeing turtles is always a highlight. Many of our clients have said the guided hike around the offshore islands was the highlight of their visit to Hawaii and one of the most interesting hikes they’ve ever been on, EVER!
If you are of average physical ability and enjoy exploring the outdoors on your own, you’ll have a great time on our Adventure Package. However, going on the Guided Tour can make the trip safer, more informative, and help you get the most out of your day. Our guides can take you places you may not find on your own and show you things you might have missed otherwise.
If kayaking is not for you but you want to spend some time on World Class Kailua Beach doing some snorkeling, body boarding,and playing in our warm waters, then the Kailua Beach Adventure would be right for you.
Kailua Bay may be the best destination for paddlers on Oahu. For the beginner it offers calm reef protected waters and a number of very interesting small near shore islands within easy reach of Kailua Beach. The experienced paddler will enjoy the waves outside the same reef that keeps the water calm near the beach. With beautiful sandy beaches, calm clear water, and multiple hiking options, these small islands make a great place to spend the day picnicking and exploring. And then there’s the wildlife … Green Sea Turtles abound and are easily approached. Summer is the nesting season for a number of rare sea birds that use these islands to raise their young. Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins and the the very rare Hawaiian Monk Seal are known to come into the bay on occasion. In winter there’s also a chance you’ll see humpback whales just off shore.
Sunscreen, underwater camera, hat, sunglasses, and a eyeglass retainer strap if you wear glasses/sunglasses (all of these are available at our shop if you don’t already have them). A Credit Card is required as a security deposit for the kayaks and other gear. Waterproof bags to keep your stuff dry are available to rent at $3.00 a day (included in packages).
